02augAll Day03TastroFest - Tasmania's Astronomy Festival


Event Details

Join us in Ulverstone for the largest astronomy festival in the country as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing with our very own full-size Apollo 11 command module replica. This year is huge as we will be live streaming directly from Houston and talking with NASA about the historic Apollo 11 mission.

Scour the op-shops for your best 1960s look or come dressed up as your favourite sci-fi hero for a photo opportunity with a Stormtrooper! Learn astronomy basics or get stuck into talks covering how the moon was formed, or if can we grow plants on other planets? Be an Apollo 11 astronaut in VR, see NASA displays and live science shows. Our astrophotography gallery will be on display where you can take home your own spectacular images. Join us throughout the festival as a curious guest or an active cosplayer as we have something for everyone! Make sure you keep an eye out on our Facebook page for added activities (full schedule released July).
